Albany Athlete To Be Featured on ESPN This Friday
ESPN will be broadcasting live from Turning Stone Casino and Resort tonight for Premier Boxing Champions. In May 2015, ESPN ended their 17 seasons of "Friday Night Fights" and partnered with Premier Boxing Champions for their telecasts.
Included on the card is Albany's own Abraham "Super" Nova.
After an incredible amateur career, the hard-hitting 22-year-old super-featherweight Abraham Nova from Albany, NY made his pro debut in April of this year, winning in a first-round knockout. The prestigious titles he won as an amateur include national and international victories at the 2014 USA Nationals, the 2014 Independent World Cup in the Dominican, Gold at the 2014 Cheo Aponte Tournament, and the 2015 Olympic Qualifiers. He is also a five-time New York Golden Gloves Champion. The main event features undefeated Miguel Flores taking on Ryan “The Polish Prince” Kielczewski in a 10-round main event bout.
We spoke with main event fighter Miguel Flores earlier this week. ESPN's telecast starts at 9 p.m. Friday night.
